November Castalia

This month's Castalia fell on Election Day. Luckily, we weren't forced to cast a vote for the best one since they were all so great. First-year prose writer Kristen Millares Young shared the prologue and first few pages of her novel; first-year poet Kori Linn read some old work as well as pieces she's been working on this year; second-year prose writer Rebecca Ainsley read a short fiction piece about one woman's love of deep sea diving; UW alumna Elissa Washuta shared an excerpt from the book she is working on, about her identity as a Cowlitz Indian; and UW poetry professor Andrew Feld read a few pieces from his forthcoming book, centered around the unifying theme of falconry. Happy listening!
